Inspired by . . . squirrel nutkin

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin is not a favorite of mine, I admit, but Beatrix Potter certainly nailed it when she described squirrel behavior in her children’s book.
Squirrels are cute, funny, and very entertaining to watch. But those observations are from a {my} human point of view. I daresay my Kitty would not agree. And Old Brown certainly did not hold that opinion of Nutkin!
I always know when the squirrel(s) are up to something because I can hear them racing around on the roof of my cottage. {And skidding off the air conditioner in the back – ha!}
They are usually harassing Kitty in some form or fashion, or trying failing to get the sunflower seed out of my squirrel proof feeder.
This particular morning however, they were up to something that turned into an entertaining photo opp.  If you’ve had a week like mine, you could use a little levity right now.


You never know what you might see when you look out your kitchen window.


Someone has discovered the beautiful mosaic birdfeeder my daughter gave us for Christmas.


Ah, yes, gently now. Find a toe hold.


The ridges of glass do nicely.


Steady now!


I do believe . . .

. . . it’s a perfect fit!

Have a wonder-filled day!
Oh, and feel free to share a riddle in the comments!
